Retirement Ceremonies Added to Morgan Grand National



The Grand National & World Championship Morgan Horse Show® is thrilled to respond to your requests and offer the opportunity for honoring some of the greatest show horses of our time. Beginning in 2016, the show will welcome one retirement ceremony per year. 

An application must be submitted to the Committee before June 15th 2016 (January 1 for following years). All applications will be reviewed and voted on by the Grand National Selection Committee and only one horse will be accepted per year. When more than one application is submitted, the selection committee has full discretion to accept the one that it deems most appropriate, and its decision will be final.

Competition begins Saturday, October 8 with three shows daily through Saturday, October 15. Show times will be at 9 a.m., 1 p.m., and 7 p.m. each day. For more information on the 2016 horse show, you can log on to www.morgangrandnational.com.
